I'm a little late in posting this, but I thought this ought to be discussed. We've talked a lot about the report of superluminal neutrinos and how the erroneous measurement was apparently caused by a loose cable and some clock drift. Well, apparently Dario Auterio and Antonio Ereditato both resigned from their positions as OPERA team leaders after the final investigations concluded and OPERA's collaboration board gave them a vote of "no confidence." I was personally just surprised at the direction all of this took.
